NE Judd Intersection Project
Temporary Closure of Judd Parkway Railroad Crossing
Construction on the NE Judd Intersection Project began in Jan. 2018 and is making significant progress. At this point, the project is ahead of schedule despite significant rain this summer.
As part of the intersection improvements, Norfolk Southern has temporarily closed the railroad (RR) crossing at Judd Parkway as of Oct. 15. The Town is working with NCDOT, Norfolk Southern and our contractors to manage the closure of the Judd Parkway railroad crossing which could take up to 30 days to complete.
The Fuquay-Varina Police are closely monitoring the situation and are providing support to alleviate safety issues when they arise. Town Staff is working with NCDOT to ensure traffic signals are performing optimally. Officers directing traffic will not help with backups since there are limited routes to divert traffic. Citizens should expect delays. Please do not call Police dispatch to report traffic congestion, so that dispatch lines may remain open to report accidents and emergencies
The Town has received questions as to whether construction work can be done in the evening to minimize traffic issues. The current phase of construction requires a full closure of the crossing to allow for the safe and expedient removal and installation of portions of track and other crossing infrastructure, therefore, the crossing would remain closed.An Official Detour Map is provided. We encourage motorists to seek alternative routes in addition to the official detour. Access to businesses along the detour will be maintained on Broad Street and Main Street. Expect higher than usual traffic in the area.
